This session invites digital projects—at any stage—that attempt to imagine the ways in which aspects of the early modern world can be visualized in digital spaces. We are particularly interested in projects that study the geographic movement of people and objects over time. Within this framework, we seek papers that explore the following questions: What are the spatial and temporal problems that early modern people, objects, and their metadata present to us? How can we reconcile the imprecision of historical sources with the required precision of digital technologies? How can we translate humanistic data into a digital platform in a way that captures the nuance of the source data? What are the limits of these methodologies?

"YOU ARE HERE": AN INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE ON PLACE, SPACE, AND EMBODIMENT

March 11-13, 2016 at Creighton University

Overview

At the root of every critical discussion, from politics to religion to student affairs, is a discussion of space, place, and location — where am I? Where can I go? Who else is here? Who cares?

Place holds a particular importance in understanding society and the social relations within it. With questions on the importance of this "ever-shifting social geometry of power and signification" (Massey 1994) that is the 'spatial,' "You Are Here," is a conference dedicated to exploring the questions and implications of space and place.

Double Helix: A Journal of Critical Thinking and Writing

Globalization, understood as the expanding integration of economic, cultural, political, technological and social activities on a worldwide scale, presents challenges, opportunities, and crises, which can involve emerging literacies and changing modes of thought. How might critical thinking and writing pedagogies shape and/or be shaped by this growing complexity? Double Helix welcomes the submission of work that both explores linkages of critical thinking and writing and considers how that work might contribute to, and perhaps to some extent define, the role of the university in the context of globalization.

The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2016.

In 1974, at a time when gender studies were investing several disciplines and departments of American colleges and universities, Sandra L. Bem, a researcher in social psychology, elaborated the Bem Sex Role Inventory (B.S.R.I). Made up of 20 items, the inventory invited participants to determine the degree to which they embraced and identified with the social and cultural gender roles as they had been framed in the 1970s American society. Out of her research, Sandra Bem developed the concept of psychological androgyny and posited that an individual's psychological balance was reached by the latter's capacity to find an intermediary position between the "masculine" and the "feminine".
